Greta Van Fleet singer Josh Kiszka recently ruptured his eardrum and the band have cancelled shows over the next few days to allow him time to recover.

Hearing is, of course, very important to us ... especially musicians and, even moreso, singers. The band have cancelled several shows and the El Paso show may also be in jeopardy. Greta Van Fleet are set to perform in the Don Haskins Center November 8th.

Ear injuries can sometimes be very painful and can cause permanent hearing damage or complete hearing loss. AC/DC singer Brian Johnson went through a hearing scare of his own in 2016 but, thankfully, he recovered fully.

According to the Greta Van Fleet Facebook page, the incident that messed up his ear occurred while Josh was in the midst of a show.

During our last show in Bangor, I ruptured an eardrum and upon further evaluation I have just been advised it needs more time to fully heal than initially anticipated. I’m working closely with my team to ensure I get proper rest in order to finish out the year strong.

We are working on rescheduling these shows and will announce the new dates as soon as possible. - Facebook


The Mayo Clinic website says that ruptured eardrums can take several weeks to heal. With the El Paso show only 18 days away at this point, there's a chance Josh may not be fully healed in time.

We'll keep you posted.
